Micro telescopic implant restores vision

Posted on 18th December 2011

Beryl Haskew who suffers from age related macular degeneration (AMD) has had her vision partially restored using pioneering new surgery to implant a miniature telescope in her eye.

Prior to the IOLVIP (intraocular lens for visually-impaired people) procedure – the first of its kind in the UK – Mrs Haskew could not recognise the face of someone stood in front of her but now she is able to read a newspaper.
